Projects and Programs

Our programs and projects focus on ways to get local residents, neighborhoods, and communities involved in our work.

Our Programs and Projects

Baltimore Harbor Waterkeeper

Baltimore Harbor Waterkeeper monitors water quality, organizes cleanups, advocates for government responsibility, and takes legal action.

Herring Run Nursery

Herring Run Nursery sells native trees, shrubs, flowers, and grasses to help reduce pollution.

One Water Partnership

One Water Partnership (formerly Blue Water Congregations) works with faith congregations to identify and implement pollution reduction projects.

Projects include rain gardens, removing impervious surfaces, planting trees, installing rain barrels, and educating parishioners.

Deep Blue

Deep Blue engages targeted neighborhoods representing a diverse mix of under-served communities. Deep Blue seeks to comprehensively address stormwater, greening, and targeted public health goals in each area.

Community Forestry

Our Community Forestry program increases Baltimore’s tree canopy reducing and filtering stormwater runoff, improving air quality, and increasing wildlife habitat.

Storm Drain Art

Our Storm Drain Art program stencils drains to inform the public that everything that enters a storm drain flows untreated into a nearby waterway.

Volunteers smile at our fall tree planting event held in Towson, Maryland. It only takes an hour to plant a tree that will improve the health and beauty of our neighborhoods and environment for generations to come.
